Nicola Benedetti’s stellar career took off after she won the 2004 BBC Young Musician of the Year competition playing Szymanowski’s lyrical First Concerto, which she reprises as the centrepiece of this popular programme. Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbanski, winner of the 2007 Prague Spring Conducting Competition, makes his debut with the LSO in two key works of the Russian repertoire, Glinka’s whirlwind overture and Mussorgsky’s vivid evocations of visual scenes from Russian life and legend.
